How Wide is too Wide?
Hey guys, first post! I've been spectating the site for about two week or so and love all of the info. I've researched, looking for answers to my questions, but none of the threads quite hit the mark.
I'm 6'2 230lbs, size 12 boot. I've only been boarding twice but I believe I've picked up on it very quickly. Stopping (both sides of the board), toe-side turns, heel-side turns, carving...everything came to me easy as hell.
I want to buy a board, preferably the Burton Bullet 164, or the Capita LCW 162.-- 1.Any preference or opinions on these? 2. Could I get away with a 159 cm board with my weight?
Another question--I need, roughly, a 258 waist with my size 12. And the Bullet has a waist of 262...3. would this be too wide? I love the feeling of having complete control of my board, so 4. would I be lacking the feeling and capabilities of quick and sharp turns with a 164?
